Where They Rank: No. 8
Where They Should Be Ranked: No. 12
Next Game: Sept. 11, South Florida
Previous Game Recap: On a day when the John Brantley-led offense managed only 26 yards of total offense through the first three quarters, the Gator defense stepped up in a big way by intercepting four passes, including a 67-yard return by junior cornerback Janoris Jenkins for the first touchdown of the game.
While the game's final score (34-12) looked like a typical opening weekend thumping, Florida's victory over the RedHawks was both hard-fought and extremely ugly.
